I went with a friend this weekend to see this new documentary about street art: "Exit Through the Gift Shop". It was fabulous. Very funny. Very cool. And a real treat for art nerds like me who have been following some of these street artists for a long time. The film takes you behind the scenes with artists like Shepard Fairey, Space Invade, Swoon, and Banksy, showing you how they work and tag. Living in New York and being a graduate student, I am very wary about dropping $13-$16 to see a movie. This one, however, was well worth the expense.
The movie is still only playing in select cities; check out the release schedule and get more information here.
